Experiential Education: What, How, and Where?

“Experiential Education (EE) occurs when worldly encounter stimulates reflection, analysis, and discovery-usually with peers r a facilitator. Resulting insights may not hold for all time or all places; they may be highly contextualized, ephemeral, or subjective; they may be constitute a mere stop in an on-going process of creative investigation. The veracity of EE links to the process of active, open-minded engagement (including questions, experiments, and problem-solving) that can persist as life-long learning.

EE happens in some classes, to be sure, but it arises more regularly and intensely outside the classrooms, dorms, internships, and off-campus programs offer access to complex environments for recovery. As domestic off-campus programs offer some of the world’s richest opportunities for EE, might lament the widespread predisposition of students for international travel.”      – Professor Steve Soderlind
